The program to create a Boeing 747 started in 1966 year. And in January, 1970, the first aircraft began to flow into commercial airlines. When designing the Boeing company, it was necessary to build a new construction hangar near Seattle so that the first model, the Boeing 747-100, could fit there.

Series -100, -200 and -300

The first modification, 747-100, has a length on the order of 70 meters and a height of 20 meters with a wingspan of 60 meters. Its weight was 162 tons. In order to cover the flight distance of about ten thousand kilometers, special engines were developed for it by Pratt & Whitney. Later, engines from General Electric and Rolls Royce were used. The "hundredth" version includes an improved model 747-100B, as well as a short-range version with a passenger capacity of up to 550 people - 747-100SR (Short Range), designed specifically for short flights between the Japanese islands.

"Two hundred" series received a higher initial weight and greater range. In the 747-200B version, it is 10800 kilometers. The undoubted advantage was the ability to easily adapt passenger planes to freight (747-200F), as well as combined (747-200C, 747-200M). And the option -200C has undergone further improvements in terms of cargo transportation. One of these improvements was a flip nose. In 1983, the Boeing 747-300 rose to the sky. Ego main characteristics have been increased. Flight range is now 12300 kilometers. The upper deck has been extended. And consequently the number of passenger seats increased. The series also includes cargo-passenger options - 747-300М and 747-300SR intended, like -200SR for domestic flights in Japan.
